Greek Reference - a free android app

Post by mingshey » Mon Jan 20, 2014 2:28 pm

Has anyone seen this
android app?
It seems to have come online a few days ago.
It' a free middle liddell lexicon plus an elementary grammar reference. It's far too simple that it doesn't do lexical analysis or stuff like that, but the author hints at improving.
There has been another app that was named "LSJ" but really Middle Liddell and was not free as it is accessible online
Now we can have the small lexicon-small but still more useful for reading texts- on our smart phones(at least with android) even when we are offline.
Well, I'd still be happy if I can have Diogenes or the whole Perseus availability on my phone for offline use.

Thanks so much for posting this! Every little bit helps, and I will now keep checking Google Play for other Ancient Greek apps.

Yeah, there are Classical Greek text apps as well for android, from automon.
They are Άπαντα series, which is free, and includes following authors:

Homer, Euclid, Plato, Aristotle, Xenophon, Aristophanes, Pindar, Plutarch, Herodotus, Thucydides, Sophocles, Aeschylus, Isocrates, Ermes Trismegistus, Epicuros, Lysias, Aeschines, Parmenides, Epictetus, Hyperides, Polybios, Gorgias, Anacreon, Arrian, Hippocrates, Demades, Plotinus, Menander, Demosthenes, Theocritus, Andokines, Euripides.

For example, the Homer texts are available in the app " Όμεηρος (Άπντα) ".

While the app names and menus are monotonically written modern Greek, The texts are fully polytonic, in classical Greek.
